COM 3 is not a normal comm port in the standard XP install. COM 3
would normally show up when you install an internal analog dial-up
modem. Does all your other devices show up?

Device: ECP would / should be your parallel printer port. You might
want to re-configure the modem onto COM 1.

thank you all. at present working modem uses com4 assigned by the computer.
some times i get error msg 633 on startup, but then i choose last known good
config and it works. i dont want to spend any more time on this now, but i
plan to find out what really went wrong with the original modem com3 port.
i'm also looking for a usb external modem.
